About Arbor Hyde Park

A budget-friendly hotel, 3-minutes from the Central Line

Great for Lancaster Gate
Arbor Hyde Park is conveniently located just a few streets from leafy Kensington Gardens. It's a 3-minute walk to Lancaster Gate Tube Station, which is on the Central Line. Hop on a train here and hop off at Oxford Circus, 5 minutes down the track.

Kensington Palace
For a peek into royal life, Kensington Palace is a 20-minute walk away, or take little ones to the Princess Diana Memorial Playground, just a 10-minute stroll. Take the half-hour wander past the Serpentine lake to catch the Tube at Hyde Park Corner station.

Georgian townhouse
Attractive Georgian architecture characterizes the area, and this Grade-2 listed townhouse is in keeping with its traditional surroundings. A range of room sizes is available, making this hotel a popular choice with families.

Keep cool
Although this is a traditional townhouse, guests are pleased to find it has an elevator. Guestrooms include an LCD TV, and safe. Store drinks in the in-room fridge and jump online in a second with the free WiFi.

Arbor Hyde Park
Not as it used to be
This is my second visit to this hotel. I had a much better experience last time I stayed here. I booked 3 club rooms for 2 nights, one for me and two for friends, same as my last booking. The room I stayed in was next to the elevator so every time you could hear the noise. On top of that there was a constant strong humming sound non stop which gave me a headache. I couldn’t sleep so I went to the reception to see what we could do. The man was kind to check for another room but the only “club” room was at the basement. On my previous stay the room had an espresso maker but now I was told it was only for the executive rooms ( the other one I booked had one). The room also needs renovation and the bathroom could be cleaner. Overall not a pleasant stay and not what I expected from a 4star hotel.

Woeful service
Oh my goodness me. Welcomed us to front desk. Informed us of an upgrade. GREAT. Well, no. The hotel had NO heating IN DECEMBER and the in-room system did not work. The hotel had no HOT WATER and guests were complaining constantly on the reception phone when I went to complain. This was not rectified over two days' stay even though there were promises that it would be done and then lies that it HAD been done, when it had not. I had to have a cold shower on day 2 out of desperation. I demanded two heaters for the large room, which barely took the edge off the deep cold, even left on all night. The staff feigned concern and managers were never available. Emails to them have been ignored even to-date. I am disputing charges and cannot get a response from them about that either. The breakfast was ok. The look and furnishings were nice. Such a shame, as such potential for all kinds of reasons.

Good location
There was no hot water in the shower so this was fixed, and then the next day the water was cold again. The location of the hotel we good, and staff very friendly.

Accommodating staff, good value Rooms need upgrade
The hotel's staff was very accommodating and did everything they could to help me with my requests and needs. They were amazing and I was very grateful to them as I was there on a business trip! However, the hotel overall needs a bit of an upgrade. Especially the carpets in the hallway and the rooms. And the temperature controls in the bathroom seem outdated. The breakfast was ok, but not amazing.
